    My Mother Saw Me As "punishment"

    I was conceived in the back seat of a car to unmarried parents in the early 1960s. My mother, therefore, "had to get married" and since her marriage was never good (both my parents are very dysfunctional people), she pretty much blamed me for forcing her into it. From the day I...

    I was not planned & was told

    if I were a boy I wouldn't be here today. Although being a girl didn't make my life oh so perfect either. Every girl grows up to realise their mother was the best friend they've always had. Not me. My life has been full of arguments and mental pain. I have always hid my...

    Mother Teresa

    Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. Mother Teresa

    Teenagers

    My mother's pregnancy was exactly the type of pregnancy that should have ended in abortion. This isn't something I say lightly. Neither my mother nor my father were fit to be parents in any way, shape, or form. My father was a 17, had a scholarship for college, was a rodeo buff...
